Baby Naming

New Born    Gender Change    Name Change after Divorce    Adoption    Step Parenting

 

A Baby Naming or Baby Blessing ceremony is the ideal option for those who do not attend church or would rather not include religion in their celebrations, however, unlike a Humanist service, spiritual and religious content can be included if you wish. (Please remember, the legal aspect of naming your child is at the point of registration at your local Register Office). 

 

Having a Naming ceremony allows you the freedom to have a personal service created just for you and your family to celebrate the life of the child.  This can be a new-born, adoption or a child or children coming into the family through marriage.  The beautiful thing is, a person can have a naming ceremony at any age.  God/Goddess parents or Nurturing/Supportive Parents will pledge to look after your child and will be involved in the ceremony.

 

I look forward to creating and delivering your ceremony filled with meaning and love.
